Olive’s Olives was established in 2008 and is a family run, 300-tree grove in the heart of the Macedon Ranges just north of Kyneton in Victoria. We also manage several other groves in our region for owners who love olives but cannot manage the haveresting/pruning/maintenance involved in successfully operating an olive grove.
Our grove is in a rich volcanic plain and the region’s Mediterranean cold winters and hot summers provide an ideal olive growing environment. We are on a wonderful journey of continuous education about this remarkable tree and the olives it bears. The grove is still recovering from a grass fire in January 2015. More education!
With no agricultural experience at all, but lots of passion, we have gradually learned how to nurture and tend these magnificent trees. From where we started in 2008 we are now much more knowledgeable about them and have mastered some of the natural pickling methods of table olive production. We will always be learning.
Our grove has several varietals of table olive trees including Volos, Nab Tamri, Kalamata, Manzanillo, Picual, Azapa, Barouni, Hojiblanco, Coratina and Californian Queen.
We are proud to sell our produce directly to the local community, provedores, restaurants and vineyard cellar doors in the Macedon Ranges. We are available for consultations in your grove to assist you with the proper management of your valuable olive trees.
